Pittsburgh Steelers: The Steelers (6-5 straight-up, 4-6-1 against the spread) have seen their playoff chances slide with a two-game losing streak, with setbacks against Baltimore (13-10) and at Cleveland (20-14). That Browns game last week and just snuck over the 33-point total after the "under" was 5-0 in Pittsburgh’s previous five. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (ribs/shoulder) also missed those last two contests and has already been ruled out for this week. Third-stringer Charlie Batch will start again as backup Byron Leftwich (ribs) is also hurt (click to check updated NFL injury report). The 37-year-old Batch had three picks against the Browns as part of a whopping eight team turnovers. The Steelers have struggled away this year (2-4 SU and ATS) and are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 road games overall.

Baltimore Ravens: Baltimore (9-2 SU, 5-5-1 ATS) had a miracle 16-13 OT win at San Diego last week after converting an improbable fourth-and-29 play late in regulation. The Ravens have won four straight (3-0-1 ATS) and can clinch the AFC North with a win and a Bengals loss. They also need to keep winning to secure the second seed in the AFC along with a first-round bye. Coach John Harbaugh’s team is a perfect 5-0 SU at home but just 2-3 ATS. The "over" is 4-1 in those contests, scoring a huge 36.8 points per game as opposed to a paltry 16.5 ppg on the road. The Ravens have beaten the Steelers in the last three meetings, covering the two games last year and pushing as 3-point favorites in the 13-10 victory two weeks ago.
